With the weight of the world on his shoulders...

Well, just the weight of the Chocolate Factory really. Via the fab team over at Ouch! I discovered a fascinating fact about the re-make of Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.

The 165 Oompa Loompas responsible for the production of Wonka's wonderful confectionary are actually played by just one short-statured man, Deep Roy, who has also kicked a bit of vampire-arse in Buffy The Vampire Slayer and waved some big light sticks in various Star Wars movies.

So if this guy has got it pretty much under control, does that mean I should stop waiting around wearing a green skivvy and white overalls in the hope of an invitation to go and play in a fantasy land with Jonny Depp and obscene amounts of chocolate? Damn!

OOH he was in buffy? Now I am interested. Are you a buffy fan? It is in my top five all time shows.. (Recent entrant: battlestar galactica, though that's another story altogether, and I have seen precisely zero short statured peeps on that show)

I thought the piece on Ouch was very strange! I think they must have been bored in the office and decided to write that out of boredom, but it's very cool though!
Love your blog! It's great!

===============
"BREAKING NEWS"
===============

-Energy and Asset Technology, Inc. (EGTY) owns a global license to market
the genetically enhanced Global Cedar growth trees, with plans to
REVOLUTIONIZE the forest-timber industry.

These newly enhanced Globa| Cedar trees require only 9-12 years of growth
before they can be harvested for lumber, whereas worldwide growth time for
lumber is 30-50 years.

Other than growing at an astonishing rate, the Global Cedar has a number
of other benefits. Its natural elements make it resistant to termites, and
the lack of oils and sap found in the wood make it resistant to forest fire,
ensuring higher returns on investments.
T
he wood is very lightweight and strong, lighter than Poplar and over twice
as strong as Balsa, which makes it great for construction. It also has
the unique ability to regrow itself from the stump, minimizing the land and
time to replant and develop new root systems.

Based on current resources and agreements, EGTY projects revenues of $140
Million with an approximate profit margin of 40% for each 9-year cycle. With
anticipated growth, EGTY is expected to challenge Deltic Timber Corp. during
its initial 9-year cycle.

Deltic Timber Corp. currently trades at over $38.00 a share with about $153
Million in revenues. As the reputation and demand for the Global Cedar tree
continues to grow around the world EGTY believes additional multi-million
dollar agreements will be forthcoming. The Global Cedar nursery has produced
about 100,000 infant plants and is developing a production growth target of
250,000 infant plants per month.

Energy and Asset Technology is currently in negotiations with land and business
owners in New Zealand, Greece and Malaysia regarding the purchase of their popular
and profitable fast growing infant tree plants. Inquiries from the governments of
Brazil and Ecuador are also being evaluated.

Conclusion:

The examples above show the Awesome, Earning Potential of little
known Companies That Explode onto Investor�s Radar Screens.
This s-t0ck will not be a Secret for long. Then You May Feel the Desire to Act Right
Now! And Please Watch This One Trade!!


GO EGTY!
